Broadway is 850 Strong is a benefit concert created to raise funds and aid for the victims of Hurricane Michael in the panhandle of Florida.

A portion of the proceeds from this event will go directly to the "Bay Education Foundation" to help rebuild schools, teachers' homes, and make sure that children who lost everything are taken care of.
